Mexico City, Mexico, 4 reales, Charles-Joanna, "Late Series," assayer L/R to right, mintmark M to left (M-L/R), very rare, ex-Kent Ponterio, ex-Jones (Plate Coin). Nesmith-86 (unlisted over-assayer); Cal-unl; S-M9; KM-18. 13.43 grams. Only one of four known L/R coins (per Kent Ponterio in the sale of his collection, which included this coin), all from shipwrecks, hence quite rare and with an important pedigree. AU details with faint traces of luster peeking through light toning (also some dark spots), light surface corrosion. Pedigreed to the Dr. Peter Jones collection, plated on page 98 of his book The First Coins of the Americas (2020), and to the Kent Ponterio collection (Ponterio auction of August 2009, with original lot-tag #9159).
